I saw him on a train. Can’t for the life of me remember who he is.

He’s a British tv actor, probably in his 50s or early 60s. Grey hair, used to be blonde. Piercing blue eyes. Often plays a hero/ love interest type role.

a bit like Greg wise but shorter!

I feel sure he was in a Sunday night drama or a soap or something but I can’t find him online! It’s driving me mad!

Robson Green?

Marti Pellow (not actor but has piercing blue eyes iirc)

Good guesses but it’s neither of them. Robson green is definitely in the same kind of tv shows

Can you think of what kind of voice he has? Accent? What type of character does he normally play?

(i mean, upper class? Tough guy?)

Good, I'd be jealous if you'd met Robson Green.
Jonathan Kerrigan?

Nick Berry but he was dark, Mark Jorden but he was tall.

He’s got a soft northern accent I think, like posh Leeds or something

Douglas Henshall... of Primeval and Shetland.

I only say that cos we saw him on a train once, I did a "s'uuup" gesture, cos obviously I recognised him and thought he might be someone I knew and then when we sat down DH said who it was.
I also di the same for Cleo Rocas (Canary Wharf....I thought she was someone I knew from another parenting group) and the one who is not Bob Mortimer....I thought he...ohhh Vic Reeves, was someone from the hotel we were staying at when i saw him at a tube station.
